  • A button-up collared dress shirt in white or other neutral colors is recommended.
  • Make sure your dress shoes compliment the color of your pants.( Black shoes with black or grey dress pants, and brown shoes with brown dress pants)
  • Also match the color of your socks with your pants. A few nice pairs of black dress socks are a worth while investment.
  • Avoid bright colors and distracting patterns for all articles of clothing and accessories.
  • Wearing a vest is optional, but looks very sharp and complete with a bow tie.
  • It is always best to keep accessories to a minimum. Do not wear anything to distracting, consider a classic silver or gold watch. 
  • Make sure your facial hair is properly trimmed or clean shaven.

  • Your dress shirt should be tucked in.
  • Since your belt will be visible it is important that your belt and dress shoes match in color.
  • Wear ties that are a solid color or basic stripes and avoid complex patterns and bright colors. 
  • Fancy tie knots should be avoided, stick with a basic medium sized knot.  
  • Since your whole tie will be visible make sure it rests at your belt.
  • It is best to cover up all tattoos and to remove any facial piercings.
  • If you have ear piercings considering wearing simple studded earrings.
  • Avoid wearing heavy cologne as this may affect some
    people's allergies.
